Tigh Mor Trossachs, the 'big house in the Trossachs', was a sadly neglected former hotel when it was rescued and restored to its former glory. Following a multi-million pound restoration and development programme, Tigh Mor emerged every bit as magnificent as it was in its heyday when Queen Victoria stayed there. Today it provides a choice of outstanding holiday apartments and cottages.
With magnificent views across Loch Achray, Tigh Mor offers a romantic introduction to the magnificent scenery of Highland Scotland - a land of craggy mountains, deep-cut glens and shimmering lochs, purple heather moorland and green forests.
Rich in wildlife, particularly deer and eagles, the Trossachs is a region of fascinating history and legend, from the mythical giant Fingal to the notorious outlaw Rob Roy Macgregor and his followers, the 'children of the mist'.
Roughly a mile to the west of Tigh Mor you can discover the enchantment of Loch Katrine, the beautiful loch that inspired Sir Walter Scott to write The Lady of the Lake. The nearest town, Callander, has a golf course and is very popular with salmon fishers. Similarly, the River Teith - a 15-minute drive away - offers excellent salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing.
Situated near the centre of Scotland, Perthshire truly is a beautiful place to stay. It's a county well known for its history, myths and legends and is home to the River Tay - the biggest river in Britain. Perthshire spans so many miles that it has earnt the nickname 'big county'; you'll certainly never run out of places to explore.
Tigh Mor Trossachs is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 41,000 investors ("Bondholders"). If you are not already a Bondholder and would like further details please see below.
Fantastic activities for couples and families
To see Perthshire at its best, you need to explore on foot. Fortunately, there are plenty of walking trails to follow, suitable for all abilities. You could take the dog and enjoy a walk through a forest, or get up in the mountains and see some incredible views. If you'd prefer to see Perthshire on two wheels, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to on and off-road cycling routes too.
Want to get your heart racing? The brave can go canyoning, cliff-jumping or flying in a microlight. Queen Elizabeth Forest Park is a great place to go walking, cycling, horse-riding or to try something a little more adventurous. We certainly recommend paying it a visit.
Easy access to the Trossachs incredible lochs
The Trossachs has an impressive 22 lochs, with Loch Lomond being the most famous. Of course, we recommend that you see as many as you can during your stay, but if you only have time for a couple, then Loch Katrine isn't to be missed. It's well known as being the inspiration for The Lady of the Lake by Sir Walter Scott, who now has a steamship named after him there. You can easily reach the loch by foot.
Enjoy Scotland's fishing mecca
Keen anglers will not be disappointed, as Perthshire is rich with great fishing spots. If you want to know where to go and what to do to catch the best fish, hire a ghillie to take you on a guided visit to a loch or river. Of course, you could stay closer to home and fish in Tigh Mor's own fishing pond or Loch Achray.
Taste some of the finest whisky in Scotland
You can't leave Scotland without sampling its national drink. Luckily, there are plenty of whisky distilleries in the surrounding areas, including Deanston's. There, you'll get a detailed tour of the distillery and you'll even get to try some of its produce. Just make sure you get the bus home!
If you and your designated driver don't mind travelling a bit further afield, Glencoyne is renowned for being one of the most beautiful distilleries in Scotland. Its malt whisky is beloved all over the world, so taking a tour here is a must. Why not try the whisky and chocolate tour, or really push the boat out and try the Masterclass, where you'll taste various whiskies and sherries? You'll even get the chance to make your very own single malt!
Explore Perthshire's magnificent castles
Scotland is perhaps just as famous for its castles as it is its whisky, and there are certainly a few to see in Perthshire. Two of the best are Doune Castle and Stirling Castle - the latter is one of the grandest and overlooks a number of Scotland's important battlefields.
Doune Castle, on the other hand, dates back to the medieval era and was once occupied by the forces of Bonnie Prince Charlie. Although it has undergone renovations, the castle's appearance today isn't far off how it originally looked.
